Thank God there was booze!
That's all I have to say - thank God there was booze. I just went to my first - and last - baby shower. (I'm not counting those work ones where all you do is have cake and give one group present -I've done one of those.) 3 hours of making small talk, knowing only 4 people there - one being the mother to be - and at least an hour of "oh, these are our bottles" "this is our mattress cover" "what a cute onesie" and my favorite "this is our dishwasher rack". I love the mother to be - she's generally a no nonsense type and probably did not enjoy the whole present opening process, but she did the best she could. I called A on the way home shouting "OH MY GOD! It was so BORING!!!!" (There may have been some words describing boring that belong more in a sailor's vocabulary than mine - but I cleaned it up for the blog.) Anyway - for me - never again. I'll send a present, but will not go through that agony every again.
